I absolutely love Selva Verde Lodge!
It is my treat to myself after weeks of homestays while studying at the CPI school. I still learn--with a top-notch teacher and the same program I use at the school--but I get to enjoy a large room with private bath (and lots of hot water), a choice of delicious foods in the dining room (with fresh fruits and fresh green salads), a drink before dinner (try the "guapatica"), a morning swim in a lovely pool with toucans in the trees, and gorgeous views of the Rio Sarapiqui.
The wildlife tours offered with either a Spanish or English speaking guide on the Lodge's wildlife reserve are super. Rafting down the Sarapiqui is lots of fun. But I think my favorite thing is simply to laze in a hammock with a good book overlooking the river.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
I can't wait to return!
